In August 2016, Kathy Field announced her resignation and retirement to the City of Tecumseh and the staff at Tecumseh Center for the Arts. Kathy will join her husband Dan in his retirement and is looking forward to beginning this next phase of their life together.
Kathy has served as Director of Operations since July 1, 2011, when Shelley Lim was appointed Director of Cultural and Leisure Activities over both Parks and Recreation as well as Tecumseh Center for the Arts. Since that time, the theater has experienced great success both in it's programming and total number of patrons and renters.
Kathy became involved with the theater when she first started volunteering with Tecumseh Youth Theatre when her daughters were in school. Kathy volunteered with set design, costumes and show production. Several years later she was hired by Tecumseh Center for the Arts to assist in the front of the house with contracts and budgeting before being promoted to Director of Operations.
Kathy has enjoyed her time at the theater and in getting to know all the patrons, renters, employees and volunteers. Even though her retirement begins November 1, Kathy is looking forward to enjoying shows as a patron.
"I think the theater is a wonderful asset to the Tecumseh community," Kathy stated. "There is always something going on here."
Shelley Lim, Director of Cultural and Leisure Activities, credits Kathy for building a strong foundation at the theater. "Kathy has been instrumental in managing the day-to-day operations over the past five years. I have enjoyed working with Kathy and wish her much happiness in her retirement."
Tecumseh Center for the Arts (TCA) is celebrating Veterans Day by holding a free concert for the community in honor of local veterans and their families. The event is sponsored by the Elizabeth Ruthruff Wilson Foundation and will take place Saturday, November 5 at 12pm (noon). The event is free and open to the public.
Music will be provided by the 338th Army Band. The 338th USARC Band, with stations in Livonia, Michigan and Columbus, Ohio, provides music for military and public occasions throughout Ohio, Michigan and beyond. With groups that cover most genres of music, the band provides music of celebration and solemnity for many occasions.
In addition to the 338th band performing we will also have a representative from Team Red, White and Blue’s Tecumseh Chapter. Donations will also be accepted in the TCA lobby for WLEN 103.9 fm’s Thank A Vet campaign. This annual fundraiser benefits Veterans of Lenawee County through the Veterans Dire Need Fund that LEAHC administers.
To learn more about our free pre-Veterans Day Concert, which is open to the public, please call the TCA at 517.423.6617.
The TCA Michigan Homegrown Project was created to emphasize the importance of sharing the theater stage with local artistic groups while building lasting relationships between arts organizations and patrons for many years to come. It is the goal of The TCA Michigan Homegrown Project to host 75 events each year that focus on celebrating the arts in the Tecumseh community. The project also aims to increase the number of patrons who visit the theater each year while strengthening and developing meaningful relationships with partner organizations. The project also includes the partnership with local art galleries and artists to display their artwork in the TCA lobby during performances.
We look forward to seeing you at the TCA!
